Project Description

Intex Systems are proud to be working on the development of the new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art, based at the historic Palace House in the centre of Newmarket.

We’ll be doing the Drylining of the building during 2015 as it is refurbished and enhanced to create a space worthy of showcasing the sport and science of horseracing, a national gallery of British sporting art and live thoroughbred horses.

Working for GRAHAM Construction – the project’s main contractor – our team starts in December 2014 in a project that we expect to complete in Spring 2015.

We’ll be installing the Fermacell system to ensure that the walls can stand up to the hanging of heavy (and priceless) sporting art.

The £15m project to build the new National Heritage Centre is an important restoration of a series of historic buildings and will create the first ever national gallery of sporting art. It is being undertaken by the Home of Horseracing Trust and has been funded by private donations as well as contributions from the Heritage Lottery Fund and other private charitable funds.

The site of the new museum and gallery is the last remaining space of King Charles II’s racing palace. The museum will be in the former Trainer’s Yard and King’s Yard boxes, with the gallery in the Palace House and live horses in the Rothschild Yard and a four-acre paddock.

You can see a video about the development of the site made by the National Horseracing Museum here.
